Morecambe look for fourth straight win in League One at Ipswich

Morecambe are looking to make it four straight wins in League One, as the Shrimps travel to promotion chasing Ipswich.

There’s full commentary of the game tomorrow (January 24) on Shrimps Live, on our FM and DAB+ services, from 7:30pm.

Morecambe have had no game since Saturday January 7, when the Shrimps beat Cheltenham Town, after their trip to Cambridge was postponed due to damage to the Abbey Stadium, and last Saturday’s game against Port Vale falling victim to a frozen Mazuma Stadium pitch.

‘’It’s given us the chance to train, and the chance for players who have come in during the transfer window the opportunity to get to know us, and it’s given the opportunity for some of our injured players some extra training time,’’ adds Adams.

‘’We’re facing an Ipswich side who have won one of their last five games, but they haven’t lost at home in the league so far this season. They’re one of the superpowers in this division. These are the sides we want to play.

‘’We need to look at it a different way, but we go there with confidence. They are under pressure (for promotion), and we go there to look to move further up the league.’’

Morecambe had climbed out of the League One bottom four, but the lack of action, coupled with sides around them picking up points, means the Shrimps have moved back into the bottom four.

Burnley loanee Michael Mellon will be in the squad, bought into the squad following an injury that prematurely ended the loan spell of striker Kieran Phillips, while Dan Crowley could also make his debut.

‘’It was important we did that and it was unfortunate for Kieran to pick up the injury in the way he did,’’ said manager, Derek Adams.

‘’He did well for us, worked hard, scored goals, created goals. but it’s an opportunity now for someone else to take it on.

‘’This is our sixth loan deal, and they’ve all done well for us so far.

‘’There may be one, perhaps two going out, and we’re looking to maybe take in one more.’’

Midfielder Jake Taylor, defender Max Melbourne and striker Courtney Duffus remain absent from the squad through injury.
